Bio and Links
Bio Photo I recently read on another bio, "our ancestors can't tell us where they are buried, we have to find them." So true. I'm so thankful to all the volunteers that have registered the graves in their areas. My personal goal is to help register graves in my area that will hopefully help others locate the final resting places of their loved ones.

Please remember that while FindAGrave is a great tool to use in genealogy research, the clear mission of FindAGrave is to register the graves. If you are new to FindAGrave, please click on the "Help with FindAGrave" menu selection and read the FAQ before starting.

Yellow daffodils I've placed on a memorial usually signifies a connection to me in some way.

I'm happy to transfer memorials within the FindAGrave guidelines found in the FAQ (and I'm somewhat flexible on that). To request a transfer, click the "Edit" tab on the top right of the memorial and then "Suggest a Correction" tab to send me a note requesting the transfer, indicate HOW you are related, and don't forget to provide your Member ID. I'll consider all requests, but you might want to consider building a Virtual Cemetery (see FAQ).

I'm also more than happy to provide links where the final disposition is known or add additional information. Again, click the "Edit" tab and "suggest a correction" to send this information.

A word about photos I've placed on memorials. I'll gladly give you permission to use my photos if you ask me, indicate that I have granted you permission, and provide a link to their FindAGrave memorial. I have found several of my photos posted in family trees on the web without my permission and without a source to FindAGrave. This is a copyright violation and poor research sourcing. Again, please just do the right thing and ask if you'd like to use anything I have posted on any of the FindAGrave memorials.

To all the volunteers that walk through long forgotten, overgrown, tick and snake infested cemeteries, taking photos of all gravestones (even broken or half buried ones), and create memorials, thank you. Those gravestones may disappear or become completely unreadable in the future. For your efforts in registering the graves, thank you for all you do.

Happy hunting!

Re: Find-A-Grave photos
May I have your permission to use your photos in my Ancestry Tree? I give photographer/owner credit for any photos I am permitted to use. I am interested in the Moser family in Arkansas. Thank you, wrmcferrin

RE: Gail Andrew Norman
How can you check the cached version of a memorial???? I'm curious. I check to make sure that there isn't a memorial already created before I create one and then BOOM after I create one, there's one already there, that wasn't there earlier. Very interested in checking this out. I would consider yours as the original then since it's the first actually in the right cemetery and the other as the duplicate.....

It has been many years since I went to Lacon. They were not in Lacon cemetery which is in town. They were way far out. I took pictures of the graves and the sign Old Salem then, so, no, I don't think they are in Lacon Cemetery. I don't have a lot of respect for the historical society. I offered them a number of important documents at several times and they never answered. When we went there, there wasn't anyone with any knowledge of the town history in the historical society and the people in the court house were so uncooperative both times I went to Lacon, that I would never bother going there again. Never seen anything like it.

Request for permission to use photos
I'm using and Family Tree Maker to work on my genealogy and would like your permission to use the photos found on

At this time, these are the memorials I'd like to use - I expect there will be more coming later:

Mitchell headstones
I want to thank you for taking time out of your life to take pictures of headstones and posting them here. I return here from time to time and I have added NEW photos to my Mitchell tree line.

Most of my tree line deceased in Arkansas and I live out in California.

Thank you again. I will return again to see if you have posted any more from the Mitchell family.

American Orlena Miller
Thank you so much for the posting for my great grandmother, American AOrlena Magness Miller who died when I was 7 years old from "stomach cancer".
Our entire family spent the last two days of her life with her (she died at home). At the cemetery we gathered again and spent the rest of the day saying goodbye to a beloved woman - it was a tradition for our family to spend the day of the burial like this and to take along a picnic lunch. My great grandfather is buried alongside her though he died some time later in California as a result of being hit by a train as it was his custom to walk the railroad tracks and being deaf, he didn't hear the train. Their daughter, Nora is buried in the same cemetery.
Thanks again for your dedication to this work,
Jacqueline Holmstrom
